      Hows this for an alternative.

      A poster on a british T forum I frequent called Di Oz, swears by sound cancelling headphones ,she wears them a few hours a day .
      When she puts them on the T dissapears and over the months it seems to be softening It as well.
      Ive followed her posts for months and she Is obviously genuine.

      Do a bit of searching for more of her posts.


      As she knows from our posts to her we all wonder how total quietness produces the T to go but she Insistes it works for her and seems to be treating the T as as well.


      EDIT: http://www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk/community/forums/tinnitus.aspx?g=posts&t=8262 2nd post down from Di Oz Is one of her good ones...and 7th post down from her excellant

      I bought a pair for the plane ride on an upcoming trip. I tried them and I can still hear my T with them on.

      It would be great if some people benefit from it. Maybe it depends on the level of T. What I did notice with the pair I bought is that the volume control goes really low so I can use them to cancel out some noise and listen to music without blasting your ears.

      Its interesting. Also interesting that an audiologist said they give the ears a 'rest from sound' when we read all over that ears are happiest with sound and they dislike silence.

      She's actually saying that her hearing improved with the use of them. I wonder if her hearing just improved anyway and that's why the T has diminished?

      Either way, you'll probably find me tracking down these headphones to give them a try, sigh......

      Personally I tend to agree with Grey1's thoughts:


      Di Oz's experience is an interesting anecdotal experience however :)
